About Me

Hi I am a craft mad mum of 2 lovely kids.I have also recently become pregnant with my 3rd child, morning sickness has made it's self felt , hopefully it won't last long. We live in Perth, Western Australia.I have just found out about Atc's and love them!! I really love all sorts of crafts ,as well as reading, singing and travel in Western Australia (my home state) My Children are in the photo with me. Katherine is 1yr old and Jonathan is 5. The photo was taken around Katherine's birthday- I can't remember if it was before or after the big day lol!

I really love card making. I love to see new ideas, but flicker just confuses me... as dose many computer related things-lol.


I am allergic to non precious metals so, no costume jewellery with metal chains or clasps. It gives me a nasty itchy rash :oP Even Silver has given me a rash before as has surgical stainless steel. The only thing that doesn't give me a rash is pure gold!!

My other allergy is to soap, so I used body wash or shower gels, the soap in bar soap leaves me Very itchy

Favorite Music

I like all sorts of music , I am currently listening to "She Will Have Her Way- The music of Tim and Neil Finn" a really popular Aussie/New Zealand duo . I like heaps from Weird Al Yankovic to Beethoven to U2 to Norah Jones . Very Eclectic!!!

Things I like....



Card making and scrap booking

Cross-stitching - I have been incorporating this into my Dotees of late

Crochet, I like making rugs

Reading - romances /action/thriller/fantasy/comedy

My Family




Random Facts

My wishlist

I'm adding a wish-list so that you can surprise me. I am willing to do one-on-one swaps just pm me!

Jelly Belly Gourmet jelly beans - my hubby loves them and he puts up with sooo much postage coming and going...

Craft Kits - I love to try new things- just not knitting!

Popular Mechanics, Empire and wood working Magazines - for hubby again.

any handmade article by you!

I would really love a hand knitted sweater/jumper/cardigan if there is someone out there that wants to do a private swap for this let me know!

I am also after a few copies of "quick and easy cross-stitch" an English magazine. If any one wants to do a private swap for these I would really appreciate it. Old ones are fine as long as they are readable.

Comment: Package just arrived, I'll be updating this rating after I have a chance to take it all in. :-) Thank you.
Comment: Hi Katrina, Unfortunately despite messages from littlewanda and myself regarding this swap, you have chosen not to reply and up to date I have not received my dotee so for now I am going to assume you have not sent her therefore I have no choice but to rate you with a 1. If you choose to remedy this situation and if I do receive my dotee I am willing to change the rating I've given you.
